Nanda Devi Base Camp Trek | A well-rounded exploratory trek in the best season


Nanda Devi. Steeped in climbing lore and ancient history, this mountain peak is the home to two goddesses in Hinduism, Nanda and Sunanda.

A spectacular trek in the Nanda Devi region of the Garhwal Himalayas of India. A well-rounded Himalayan experience complete with indigenous culture, trekking, and (optional) peak scrambling. Join us.

Leadership. Luke Smithwick will be leading this trek working alongside his team of top notch local guides and staff.

Cost Effective. Full Service. We will climb with horse support to base camp.

Proving Ground.  Come and enjoy a trek in the spectacular Himalaya, with the guides and resources to keep you safe and informed.

Trust.  Trekking and climbing at 5000 meters is no place to be short on resources. We make the proper advance preparations to ensure that our team will be properly cared for, from airport to summit to airport.
